Discover over 100 Vintage Knitting Patterns collection into one eBook!

PieceWork magazine is pleased to present this exact reproduction (neither alterations nor corrections were made to the original published in the 1800s) from Weldon's Practical Needlework, Volume 3-5.

We have reproduced for you here the knitting material from series nine to twelve. The 109 patterns range from simple to ornate and include quilt squares, men's socks, sweet baby jackets and dresses, women's vests and tops, as well as a variety of home décor pieces. These patterns also focus on a variety of knitting techniques and stitches ranging from the common to the slightly obscure. They include brioche stitch, a Scotch plaid pattern, railway stitch, Foxglove pattern, German trellis lace, checkered stitch, and so many more. The instructions might perplex a contemporary knitter accustomed to detailed charts and succinct directions, but the patterns are often ingenious, and many of the objects transcend the century-plus span of years since they were devised.

It is a fitting example of needlework and knitting history, hand in hand. This electronic pattern book opens a window on another time and another place. The time is the turn of the twentieth century and the place is London, England. Needleworkers of that era would be amazed to see their favorite knitting patterns in a virtual format of which they could never have dreamed.

In an effort to bring needlework to the emerging middle class, Weldon's, a paper pattern producer of the Victorian era, began to publish monthly newsletters devoted to various crafts (beading, knitting, crochet, patchwork, and the like). These newsletters were typically 14 pages and cost 2 pence. Later, they were collected into book form, titled Weldon's Practical Needlework.

This eBook serves as a curiosity, an inspiration, a resource, and a link to a time beyond our memories. In using and enjoying it, you keep the craft alive.

Blast from the Past
It is great to see patterns these patterns. You have to change the needles from English to US and some of the wording has to be looked up. But it is great to make things that were made so long ago. Review by Amanda (Posted on 12/17/2013)
